Subject [UPDATE] Debian 9 "stretch" systemvmtemplate for master
Date Fri, 08 Dec 2017 14:58:28 GMT

Our effort to move to Debian9 systemvmtemplate seems to be soon coming to conclusion, the
following high-level goals have been achieved so far:

- Several infra improvements such as faster patching (no reboots on patching), smaller setup/patch
scripts and even smaller cloud-early-config, old file cleanups and directory/filesystem refactorings

- Tested and boots/runs on KVM, VMware, XenServer and HyperV (thanks to Paul for hyperv)

- Boots, patches, runs systemvm/VR in about 10s (tested with KVM/XenServer and NFS+SSDs) with
faster console-proxy (cloud) service launch

- Disk size reduced to 2GB from the previous 3+GB with still bigger /var/log partition

- Migration to systemd based cloud-early-config, cloud services etc (thanks Wido!)

- Strongswan provided vpn/ipsec improvements (ports based on work from Will/Syed)

- Several fixes to redundant virtual routers and scripts for VPC (ports from Remi json/gzip
PR and additional fixes/improvements to execute update_config faster)

- Packages installation improvements (thanks to Rene for review)

- Several integration test fixes -- all smoke tests passing on KVM and most on XenServer,
work on fixing VMware test failures is on-going

- Several UI/UX improvements and systemvm python codebase linting/unit tests added to Travis

Here's the pull request:

I've temporarily hosted the templates here:

Outstanding tasks/issues:

- Should we skip rVR related tests for VMware noting a reference to a jira ticket to renable
them once the feature is support for VMware?

- Fix intermittent failures for XenServer and test failures on VMware

- Misc issues and items (full checklist available on the PR)

- Review and additional test effort from community

After your due review, if we're able to show that the test results are on par with the previous smoke test results (i.e. most are passing) on XenServer, KVM, and VMware I
would proceed with merging the PR by end of this month. Thoughts, comments?
